The Applied Math building is an enabling project for a new engineering building. It utilized a Design/Build delivery
method in an effort to maximize design opportunities and the project budget, while reducing risk. The Applied Math
Project is a mixed-use building comprised of approximately 13,000 s.f. of offices and support spaces for the
University’s Division of Applied Mathematics. The project is designed to achieve a LEED Gold rating from the USGBC.
Brown University requires new construction and major renovation projects to be a minimum of 25% more efficient,
and up to 50% more efficient than the Rhode Island adopted International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) at time
of permit application. Compared to the code baseline case for building loads the project is expected to reduce annual
energy consumption by a minimum of 29.42% in site BTU energy use, surpassing the 25% requirement. Energy
efficiency measures include HVAC energy recovery, radiant heat, reduced light power densities, and automatic
